    Hi Ashley,

    Take a look at this site: http://www.lifescholarship.org/

    And there are some links to other sources here: http://www.lupus.org/webmodules/weba...=180&zoneid=76

    I'll keep looking to see if I can find anything. When are you graduating? Also, let you school counselor know you are looking for scholarships - that's how I got one of mine many years ago - I was an aide for the counselor's office and told all of them that I was looking for scholarships. One day an application came through in which the counselor had to recommend one student from the high school to apply, and he asked if I was interested. It turned out to be $1,000/year for up to 5 years provided I kept my grades up and met with the committee at the end of each year. Good luck - there are tons of scholarships out there, it's just a matter of finding them!

    Edited to say I also found www.fastweb.com but you have to enter a lot of information before they give you info about scholarships. I don't know if it's legit or not, but might be worth checking out.
